They May Not Be Florida Sunkist BUT Brazil has ORANGES

It amazes me the fresh fruit available here year round. The thing we notice is that it keeps really well too. We always bought fresh fruit in China but we would buy it day to day, as we found it would spoil faster (I think because it was brought from the country to the city by cart, and it was already a bit bruised) I love the taste of fresh stuff! It will be so hard to go back home and buy things at the grocery store and frozen fruit because it just doesn’t have the same flavor!

Just like through the mountains close to us there is bananas in abundance…the areas close to Buzios and Paraty must be known for oranges. Instead of seeing banana stands we  see orange stands every so many metres. We chuckle because there are many ( it’s hard to snap pictures driving) and we wonder how each vendor makes money being so close together. It’s not Florida Sunkist but Oranges abound in Brazil!

Orange vendors wheel their cart of oranges past the cars stopped because of road construction

The oranges are delicious and so juicy. No wonder Brazilians drink a lot of orange juice!

Oranges by the Truckload! Brazilian LOVE orange juice!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
